Can Men Get Head Lice?

Answer

Men can get head lice since they too have hair but is most common in women and children below nine years. The lice are only spread through pro-longed close head to head contact or sharing of combs and hats and not by air as they cannot fly, hop or jump. The lice are egg laying parasites that feed constantly on blood and if removed from the host for over 24 hours they perish.
